|Bob Nixon's rutabagas|
I don't know how I managed to get this far in life without being aware of this event, but I'm glad I am now.
If you would like to be just as informed, visit the official event website, watch a video of the winning toss from several years ago, listen to Crookston's song, and also take in the Rutabaga Chorus (to the tune and with the spirit of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus"). This is an awesome sporting phenomenon, celebrating an awesome vegetable.
For the record, Bob's rutabagas are not nearly round enough to work as curling stones, though I'm sure they tasted great.
